Are the cats silly, or is the silliness in the eye of the viewer?

Summertime in our now catless yard:
Wild Geranium
Cinnamon Fern
Brown-eyed Susan
Swamp Milkweed
The Hubby and I are hedging our bets by leaving The Cat Hotel and feeding station in place, until we see how things progress with Paddy O'Malley.

Interesting to note how often I look outside to get eyes on The PO'M, but he's not there!

Inside, he sits in my lap and allows our usual lovefests, yet he'll dart into hiding as the merest provocation.

We will take things one step at a time.

Preliminary Results

Thank you all for your encouraging words for The PO'M! 

He made his first trip to the veterinarian in a carrier, as all previous trips had been in a humane trap.

The blood tests will take a few days, but here's what we know so far:

PO'M is FIV negative.

He probably has a flea bite allergy, hence his licking and often hairball expulsion.

He's got wicked bad teeth.

WARNING: Turn volume down for video below, otherwise you'll drive your own cats crazy!

Always the hair stylist!

Dental appointment is set in a few weeks, but we may move it forward, once the blood work gives us the green light.  The vet said at least three canines would go.

Paddy took the grabbing, carrier-stuffing, and being vet-handled poorly; can't say I blame him.

But, he's allowing me to pet him, smooch him, and rub his belly, so he'll be okay.

More Smiley Faces


Sweetie leaves these smiley faces for me often.

Do you think she's trying to tell me something?

(She may take it back, should Inside PO'M invade her space!)
"Wait...what did you say?"

The PO'M goes to the vet in the morning...
will report as soon as I have something to report...

The World's Premier PO'Monday post, from inside Eastside Cats!

"What's all the fuss about?"
Dearest friends,

It happened in a blink.

The PO'M was at the back door, and it was raining.

I opened the door, knelt, and gave him head scritches.  He inched closer, then closer.

When Paddy got his front feet inside, I threw caution to the wind, and pulled him inside.

Picking him up in my arms, I walked through the house, up the stairs, and into the closed off former kitchen area of Sweetie's apartment.

Yes, Paddy O'Malley is INSIDE!

Unplanned, unexpected, and mind-boggling.

He's eating, drinking and using the litter box.

He'll stay sequestered until he sees the veterinarian.

I am chuffed!

I am drawn to colorful things.

Multi-colored, swirls of color, rainbows of color!

Lucky for me, my Prisma phone app never lets me down.

Today, I offer two images: the first, of Paddy O'Malley in glorious color.

 A dear friend, however, has mentioned that she prefers artified nature scenes.

Therefore, I also offer this fern image, taken when on a native-to-Michigan fern walk at Tenhave Woods, in Royal Oak, Michigan last week.  

Honestly, I only stayed for about half of the instructional walk, because the mosquitoes were too much for me.

And More 'Hood Cats!

Folks, I cannot make this stuff up!

I find new cats in my neighborhood often.

Getting to know their names is a challenge, but I'm crazy enough to walk up to folks, introduce myself, then ask for the name of their cat.
Jackson is the black cat, and I've posted about him before.
His new sisfur is Sweet Pea, and she's just learning the "watching out the window" ropes.
This is Miss Annie, and while I've met her before, I hadn't posted about her.
Sightings of her a few and far between, and she's very friendly!
This fraidy cat sat watching Miss Annie and me, but wouldn't come any closer.
I'll have to put on my detective hat and find out more about him.
Spied this kitty enjoying someone's vegetable garden.

 Many of you know that community cats go unseen by the general public.

But we feline aficionados have 'cat radar' and see cats everywhere!

A Rare Sneakers Sighting

I see Sly often on my 'hood walks, yet his brofur Sneakers is elusive.

Imagine how happy I was to get this greeting the other day!
Sly, however, is always ready to show off his handsomeness...enjoy!

So very thankful to have these floofies as my neighborhood cat friends.

Too Fine!

Image grabbed from the interwebs.

Today is the anniversary of the first Lunar Landing: July 20, 1969.

I remember watching the TV, seeing the grainy black and grey images.

Humankind can be so amazingly smart, and so stupid.

Hoping that the human race can make amends for the disasters that they've caused to Mother Earth and her children.

Going to the Moon shouldn't be about looking for the next place to build houses for humans, but about learning that our planet is the best one we'll ever have, and that we need to take care of it.

I lubs himb!

 Paddy O'Malley doesn't expend ANY extra energy, when he's got my lap as his throne.

I love him so!

Today, I played with an image of Sweetie, with her head tucked under but all of her paws and tailio out!

Created with Prisma, I like the rainbow of colors.

No pounding, no saws buzzing, no men walking past the windows.

Below is an image of what our new roof looks like; I think it's pretty nifty!

Almost like the Canadian flag, no?

Too bad the don't make cat-head shingles.

Needless to say, we are all thankful for being able to hear ourselves think again!

Da Boyz, being adorable and snoozing together, without roofing noise.
